I'm tired and harried and altogether feeling like I have no life of my own, which is a silly thing to say because what other life do I possess? So I will take instruction from those who know better.
Rilke: "Irony. Do not let yourself be governed by it, especially not in uncreative moments."
Dickinson: "The Mind is so near itself--it cannot see distinctly--"
Corso: "When I got the proofs I felt both good and sad, good because there are some very good poems in [the] book, and sad because there aren't any poems that bespeak my dream my idea my lyric, God knows what."
Wyatt: "Dere lady, we wayte onely thy sentence."
Wiler: "There are three good things about this town."
